we find ways to hold

we find ways to hold
it altogether, stay whole,
compartmentalize

a juxtaposition for how
we show up in the present

we are showing up

we are showing up
differently in this moment,
for once,
twice, and as
we are called,
for every time –
commit to memory
the color,
the volume,
the depth,
the shape

three-quarters of the

three-quarters of the
time, i do not know what i
am getting myself

into – and then one-quarter
of the time, there appear you

day after day, love

stepping out requires

it’s all well and good

it’s all well and good
to state that we will not show
up, that we will take
to the streets, show
solidarity by stepping out
of housework, child
care, maybe apply
some self-care at
the local beauty
parlor, therapeutic
spa. meanwhile, a
host of silent women
will step in
to fill the gap, make
the lunches, file the
nails, listen to and
nod and listen to the
ones who insist on
being heard
